French Cops Claim They’re Too Tired To Keep Policing Massive Protests

Months of mass demonstrations and violence linked to the Euro 2016 football tournament have left French police begging for mercy. A heated combination of protests against controversial changes to France’s employment laws and outbreaks of violence by Russian and British football fans has taken its toll, leading a union leader to beg for a reprieve for French law enforcement.

Protests opposing Francois Hollande’s proposals to relax France’s labour code began in March and have been called the largest and longest-lasting since the French Revolution. While the government argues the changes are crucial to lower unemployment, protesters claim they are bad for workers’ rights. Countrywide protests have included strikes and blockades of oil refineries and hundreds of fuel depots. Workers also downed tools at the state-owned rail company.

On June 14, some masked protesters hurled paving slabs, smashed shop windows, and burned cars on the city streets. Despite relatively little mainstream media coverage of the mass protests, a series of violent images emerged showing police responding brutally with tear gas, batons, and water cannons. Around 60 people were arrested, and 29 police officers and 11 protesters were injured. Shortly after, workers’ unions and student organisations called for more street protests and strikes, on June 23 and June 28, to reject the new labour laws currently being debated in the Senate.

Earlier this week, France’s main police union, Alliance, pleaded with workers to postpone Thursday’s planned day of demonstrations to give the police time to recover.

“We’re asking for this demonstration to be postponed, along with any other static protests as our colleagues on all fronts are exhausted, worn out and tired,” Frederic Lagache, Alliance deputy secretary general said.

Describing the protests as repetitive and very violent, he said the police are too exhausted to cope with them — especially on top of dealing with terrorism and violence linked to the hosting of Euro 2016.

Despite the pleas for respite, the government gave the green light to the demonstrations — but only if they were confined to a small area of the city. At least 85 people were arrested in the capital as thousands took part in the largely peaceful protests. Union officials said 60,000 people attended the march, but police said the number was closer to 20,000.

Fresh California Oil Spill Hits Ventura ~ TheLipTV


Note: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! It’s time to begin jailing the CEO’s of the petro industry for their negligent crimes against humanity and the environment. No more fines, only jail time will get these inhumane psychopaths attention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Crimson Pipeline LLC. had a 10-inch pipe buried underground which burst this week along the California coastline. An estimated 29,000 gallons of crude oil spilt. In the last decade, Crimson Pipeline, LLC. has had 10-spills. In this instance, the oil missed leaking into the ocean, but will have devastating consequences on the surrounding environment in Ventura County. The responsible company has been fined several times by the EPA which has done little to stop events like these from occurring and continues to allow the company to remain in operation.

Olympics Mascot Juma the Jaguar Shot Dead


 3181635-large

The Brazilian team’s official mascot for the 2016 Summer Olympics being held in Rio de Janeiro this August is a smiling cartoon jaguar named Ginga. But a real, live jaguar named Juma was probably not very happy after an Olympic torch relay ceremony held June 20 in Manaus, Brazil.

Juma lived in the Brazilian Amazon — in a zoo that’s attached to a military jungle training camp. The 17-year-old jaguar spent her life there, ever since she was taken in as a cub after her mother died.

As the Olympic torch was carried through the camp, Juma — who’d been drugged beforehand – was removed from her enclosure, chained and put on display. After she was returned to her enclosure, she managed to escape. Still inside the zoo, she was shot with four tranquilizer darts. When she approached a soldier, Juma was shot dead.

The army’s press office said Juma, a “docile animal used to living among people at the center,” was killed to protect the soldiers.

Why was a member of a threatened species – jaguars are already extinct in Uruguay and El Salvador – subjected to such a stressful event?

Rescued jaguars are “sometimes kept as mascots by jungle battalions and shown at military parades,” BBC Brazil reports. Juma was a mascot for the Manaus infantry battalion.

“Often, jaguars already are stressed by being kept in captivity, that’s only compounded when they’re exposed to hubbub,” University of Brasilia animal behavior scientist Joao Paulo Castro told BBC Brazil. The Rio 2016 Organizing Committee was responsible for this irresponsible event.

 

“We made a mistake in permitting the Olympic torch, a symbol of peace and unity, to be exhibited alongside a chained wild animal,” it said in a statement. “This image goes against our beliefs and our values. We guarantee that there will be no more such incidents at Rio 2016.”

Putting Juma on display was not authorized, according to the Amazonas State Institute for Environmental Protection (Ipaam), which oversees the use of wild animals in Brazil.

“No request was made to authorize the participation of the jaguar ‘Juma’ in the event of the Olympic torch,” Ipaam stated. The organization is investigating the incident.

The killing of Juma has sparked outrage around the world. The Rio 2016 Facebook page is filled with angry comments from people appalled by her death and vowing not to watch the Olympics.

Carlos Durigan, director of WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society) Brazil, is among the many wildlife experts who don’t think Juma belonged at the torch ceremony.

“I don’t think the jaguar is a good mascot, especially like this – chained up, like a trophy on display,” Durigan told the Guardian.

“Even in her reportedly drugged state, this jaguar knew to bolt from her life of misery the second she could, and she paid for her yearning for freedom with her life,” said Brittany Peet, director of the PETA Foundation’s captive animal law enforcement. “When will we learn?”

In its statement about the killing of Juma, the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee said, “Even when interaction with wild animals is part of the local culture, the exhibition of these species will not be permitted on the torch relay.”

On the torch relay? Under no circumstances should a wild animal be subjected to such stress during any other event, merely for people’s entertainment – even when it’s allegedly “part of local culture.”

Demand justice for Juma by signing and sharing this petition urging Ipaam to stop allowing wild animals to be used at events.

And if there’s an issue that you care about, whether it’s local or national, start your own petition! Use this guide to get started and watch it grow as the Care2 community rallies around your cause.

Why You Should Avoid Palm Oil Like The Plague **BOYCOTT PALM OIL NOW**


Note: You can take action NOW to help save orangutans by reading all food labels and BOYCOTTING PRODUCTS which contain PALM OIL.  We are the Ones we waited for, embody the change we seek. ….Much love, {~A~}

palmm-700x398

Palm oil is used in many things from chips and baked goods to shampoo and cleaning products to an oil used for cooking. It is the most widley used vegetable oil in the world. It even sounds healthier because it’s different from GMO vegetable oil like canola. It comes from a palm fruit grown on an African oil palm tree so what could be unhealthy, harmful, or unsustainable about that? Well it’s contributing to the death of thousands of orangutans and many other animals who live in the forests. Not to mention, it’s affecting the indigenous people and the environment.

An area of forest equal to 300 soccer fields is beings destroyed every hour for the purpose of growing oil palms. 

Palm oil is grown throughout Africa, Asia, North America and South America. This industry of exporting palm oil is not sustainable. Producing palm oil is linked to major issues like deforestation, habitat degradation, climate change, and animal cruelty. Many animals throughout the jungles of Borneo and Sumatra are injured, killed and displaced. The forests must be cleared for the development of palm oil and this is done by setting fire to the land which destroys not only their home, but leads to many of the animals burning to death. The deforestation also increases access to the animals for poachers and wildlife smugglers (who capture for pets, medicinal uses, or body parts).

Some orangutans are even shot by plantation owners or farmers because the animals are viewed as ‘pests.’

Orangutans live on these Indonesian islands and the palm oil industry is one of the main contributors to the dramatic reduction of orangutan populations. Orangutans live in areas with fertile lowland soils, close to rivers and therefore their habitat is seen as ideal for growing the oil palm.

HOW CAN WE HELP

Europe is aware when palm oil is an ingredient in their store-bought food, but the U.S. is still left in the dark. EU law on food information to consumers (FIC) means that there is no hidden ingredients under generic titles, such as palm oil written as vegetable oil. If Europe can pass this law, why can’t the rest of us? We must lobby for palm oil to be labelled as well so we can choose which products to buy.

Also, here is a petition to sign to demand only sustainable palm oil: Save Orangutans

The Brexit contagion: How France, Italy and the Netherlands now want their referendum too

Time left to vote in the EU Referendum

Polls close at 10pm on Thursday 23 June
Polls for the EU Referendum are now closed

Voters in France, Italy and the Netherlands are demanding their own votes on European Union membership and the euro, as the continent faces a “contagion” of referendums.

EU leaders fear a string of copycat polls could tear the organisation apart, as leaders come under pressure to emulate David Cameron and hold votes.

It came as German business leaders handed a considerable boost to the Leave campaign by saying it would be “very, very foolish” to deny the UK a free trade deal after Brexit.

Markus Kerber, the head of the BDI, which represents German industry, said that 1970s-style trade barriers would result in job losses in Germany.

“Imposing trade barriers, imposing protectionist measures between our two countries – or between the two political centres, the European Union on the one hand and the UK on the other – would be a very, very foolish thing in the 21st century.”

EU vote: Campaigners have their final say Play! 02:07

In Italy, the anti-establishment Five Star movement on Tuesday declared it would demand a referendum on the euro. The party wants the euro to be split – one for the rich north and one for the south.

Beppe Grillo, the party’s leader, has called for a full referendum on EU membership. He said: “The mere fact that a country like Great Britain is holding a referendum on whether to leave the EU signals the failure of the European Union.”

Five Star won 19 out of 20 mayoral elections on Sunday, including in Rome and Turin, in a major blow to Matteo Renzi, the Prime Minister.

In France, Marine Le Pen, the Front National leader, last night called for France to have its own referendum on the “decaying” EU. “I would vote for Brexit, even if I think that France has a thousand more reasons to leave than the UK,” she said.

In the Netherlands, polls show a majority of voters want a referendum on membership, and voters are evenly split over whether to stay or go.

The Orlando Tragedies and the Metaphysical “Wake Up Call” with Sean Stone


Note: Overall, and especially from a metaphysical perspective, this is a very insightful interview. Sean’s feedback resonates with my observations and inner-experience of everything playing out on the world stage. Blessings, {~A~}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Within the span of less than a week (beginning June 11, 2016) Orlando, Florida suffered a triple blow of tragedies. First with the gunning down of former “The Voice” contestant Christina Grimmie outside of a concert venue where she had just performed. Shortly thereafter there was, of course, the mass shooting outside of The Pulse nightclub in #Orlando which apparently took the lives of 49 people and injured scores of others. Several days later a young boy, while on vacation with his family at DisneyWorld was apparently dragged off by an alligator and subsequently killed. Three separate events. Three somewhat different scenarios, and ONE city. Could this all happen by JUST coincidence or something more?

Listen to #enterthebuzzsaw host Sean Stone as he weighs in on this strange confluence of events!

How the NDAA Allows US Gov to Use Propaganda Against Americans


Note: This article is from 2013, but is still quite relevant to today.

susanne_posel_news_-3898-logo-set-570x315_620_348-300x168

 

The US government has unbound the legal regulations against using propaganda against foreign audiences and American citizens. The intention is to sway public opinion by using television, radio, newspapers, and social media targeting the American and foreign people in controlled psy-ops.

The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has an amendment added that negates the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (SMA) and the Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987.

These laws made propaganda used to influence foreigners and US citizens illegal. Without these laws, disinformation could run rampant throughout our information junkets.

This amendment added to the NDAA has passed into implementation as of this month.

SMA defines the prohibition of domestic access to influence information through a variety of means, from broadcast to publishing of books, media, and online sources by restricting the State Department.

The Broadcasting Board of Governors was created from SMA. This agency claims to “inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of freedom and democracy”. They omit that their specialty is making sure propaganda is added to the informational flow we all depend on.

The amendment sanctions the US government, without restriction, the use of any mode of message to control how we perceive our world.

As of now, the level of propaganda in the mainstream media (MSM) is quite high, with all of our television, printed media and internet sites associated with MSM owned by only 5 corporations.

Without these laws, the lies purveyed as truth to foreigners would find their way to our doorsteps as a purposeful operation enacted by our government. And in the name of national security, the US government could, and probably would, disseminate misinformation to gain public support for otherwise decidedly deplorable actions.

Amendment 114 of the NDAA was approved by the House in May of 2012.

The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act (2012) reads:

Sec. 501. (a) The Secretary and the Broadcasting Board of Governors are authorized to use funds appropriated or otherwise made available for public diplomacy information programs to provide for the preparation, dissemination, and use of information intended for foreign audiences abroad about the United States, its people, and its policies, through press, publications, radio, motion pictures, the Internet, and other information media, including social media, and through information centers, instructors, and other direct or indirect means of communication.

(b)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), the Secretary and the Broadcasting Board of Governors may, upon request and reimbursement of the reasonable costs incurred in fulfilling such a request, make available, in the United States, motion pictures, films, video, audio, and other materials prepared for dissemination abroad or disseminated abroad.

According to Michael Hastings : “The new law would give sweeping powers to the State Department and Pentagon to push television, radio, newspaper, and social media onto the U.S. public. “It removes the protection for Americans,” says a Pentagon official who is concerned about the law. “It removes oversight from the people who want to put out this information. There are no checks and balances. No one knows if the information is accurate, partially accurate, or entirely false.”

Representatives Mac Thornberry (R-TX) and Adam Smith (D-WA) in the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act (2012) (H.R. 5736), advocate that it is time to liberate the authority of the US government to broadcast American produced foreign propaganda in the U.S.

The amendment, which was hidden within the NDAA, has remained relatively unnoticed. However, it empowers the State Department and Pentagon to utilize all forms of media against the American public for the sake of coercing US citizens to believe whatever version of the truth the US government wants them to believe.

All oversight is removed with Amendment 114 . Regardless of whether the information disseminated is truthful, partially truthful or completely false bears no weight.

Thornberry believes that with the use of the internet by terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, the federal government needs to have the freedom to circulate their own propaganda to combat terrorism effectively.

“I just don’t want to see something this significant – whatever the pros and cons – go through without anyone noticing,” says one source on the Hill, who is disturbed by the law. According to this source, the law would allow “U.S. propaganda intended to influence foreign audiences to be used on the domestic population.”

Four billion dollars per year is spent by the Pentagon on propaganda aimed at the American public; as well as $202 million spent by the Department of Defense on misinformation operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2011.

Currently, the Pentagon is using “ sock puppet ” (fake handles) on social media sites to purvey false information, harass users and enact psy-ops to influence Americans.

A California corporation is working with the US Central Command (CENTCOM) in spreading propaganda overseas. They provide “online persona management service” that allows active duty military to set up an estimated 10 different false identities that are used worldwide.

Each fake persona comes complete with a background history and safeties to prevent “sophisticated adversaries” from discovering the lie.

CENTCOM spokesman Commander Bill Speaks said: “The technology supports classified blogging activities on foreign-language websites to enable CENTCOM to counter violent extremist and enemy propaganda outside the US.”

Sophisticated software allows military to engage in online conversations with coordinated answers, blog comments and instant messaging remarks that are solely meant to spread pro-American propaganda.

US Army whistleblower, Lieutenant Col. Daniel Davis believes there is a definitive aspiration within the US government “to enable Public Affairs officers to influence American public opinion when they deem it necessary to “protect a key friendly center of gravity, to wit US national will.”

Edward Bernays would be proud.

Developing: Former Chinese Leader Jiang Zemin Said to Be Removed From Residence


By Fang Ming, Epoch Times and Larry Ong, Epoch Times

 

Jiang Zemin, the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party, has been removed from his residence and is in custody of the military in Beijing, according to a source in China with direct knowledge of the events.

The source told the Chinese-language edition of Epoch Times the flow of events, which the newspaper is still in the process of verifying.

At 4:00 a.m. on June 10, Jiang was forcibly taken from his home and handed to a People’s Armed Police squad, on the orders of the commander of a security detail assigned to retired senior cadres, the source said. The source is an individual in this security detail.

The armed police squad, led by the chief of staff of a department in the armed police, then brought Jiang to a military compound belonging to the Beijing Military Region, and delivered him to a lieutenant general and a senior colonel from the People’s Liberation Army. An individual in plain clothes, presumably a security agent of some kind, was also present when Jiang was delivered, the source said.

The source told Epoch Times that the order to remove Jiang came directly from the Central Military Commission, the regime’s top armed forces governing body, and was conducted with extreme secrecy.

Epoch Times is trying to ascertain the authenticity of the information. Jiang’s current whereabouts are unknown; there are no official reports on the matter.

There has been already word that Jiang Zemin’s two sons have been placed under some form of control.

Zheng Enchong, a well-known Shanghai-based human rights lawyer who was placed under house arrest after tangling with officials connected with Jiang in Shanghai, told Epoch Times in March that Jiang and his sons have had their movements restricted. Zheng says his tip comes from “extremely reliable” channels, and points to the relaxation of restrictions on his own person as supportive evidence.

Speaking to international broadcaster Sound of Hope Radio on June 14, Zheng said that he was recently invited to a reunion of old classmates, one of whom was a former deputy director-level officer. “They said you have to come, because we’re celebrating the fact that Jiang Zemin’s finished,” Zheng said.

Zheng added that the police detail assigned to keep watch on him have started openly talking about the soft detention of Jiang Zemin and his sons.

A source close to the Party disciplinary inspection branch in Shanghai told Epoch Times earlier in June that Jiang Mianheng, Jiang Zemin’s elder son, is presently being placed under house arrest in an undisclosed residence outside Shanghai.

Murder of Environmental Activists Reaches New High ~ TheLipTV


Environmentalist were killed more this year than any other year on record, according to a new report from environmentalist watchdog Global Witness. The report found 185 killings across 16 countries in 2015. Almost 40% of the victims came from indigenous groups who were killed by private security, state forces and contract killers. The report found that the number one cause of violence is conflict over mining, followed by agribusiness, hydroelectric dams and logging. The assassination of Berta Caceres, a Honduran activist and Goldman Environmental Prize winner, made headlines last year when it was speculated that she was murdered in her bed by hitmen. The report has called for urgent action from governments, which have not only been complicit, but are often directly responsible for murdering activists. Joya Mia Italiano, Nik Zecevic and Elliot Hill take a closer look at the increasing attacks on environmentalists on the Lip News.

On the Anniversary of Cecil’s Death, House Democrats Target Trophy Hunting

Bio

It’s been nearly a year since an American hunter killed Cecil, an iconic lion in Zimbabwe. House Democrats are using the anniversary to question the premise that trophy hunting benefits Africa’s endangered wildlife.

In a new report called Missing the Mark, the Democratic staff of the House Committee on Natural Resources charges that Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Namibia, and South Africa are providing U.S. officials with little evidence that taxes and fees raised from trophy hunts targeting lions, leopards, elephants, and rhinoceroses provide conservation benefits and have an overall net-positive impact on imperiled species.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which has the authority to grant a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to American trophy hunters wishing to bring animal trophies into the country, has too often supported nations’ claims that the hunts enhance the survival of the species, the report charged.

“You can’t make the assumption that these countries are using the funds for conservation. You have to have the proof,” said Matt Strickland, a member of the committee’s Democratic staff. “U.S. hunters are responsible for taking a lot of animal trophies from Africa, and we want to make sure the Fish and Wildlife Service is doing its job in permitting trophy imports, and Americans aren’t contributing to the decline of certain species.”

American hunters wanting to import the heads, horns, pelts, or any other parts of animals they have killed overseas must request a permit from the Fish and Wildlife Service.

If the animal has threatened or endangered species protections under the Endangered Species Act, the agency requires that the hunt enhance the survival of the species. The agency is also responsible for managing U.S. compliance with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, which regulates and permits the hunting of endangered species as well.

“On paper, all four countries examined have equally strong frameworks for ensuring that trophy hunts benefit species conservation,” the authors wrote. “Unfortunately, the implementation of these frameworks has in many cases been marred by corruption and has not produced the advertised and desired results.”

The Fish and Wildlife Service has sometimes turned a blind eye to these shortfalls and granted import permits for animals killed in these countries, said Strickland. “They accepted at face value that trophy hunting benefits wildlife conservation without drilling down and actually checking on individual cases,” he said.

An agency spokesperson stated in an email that the agency is reviewing the report, adding, “By law, we cannot and will not allow trophies of certain protected species into the United States that were hunted in any nation whose conservation program fails to meet high standards for transparency, scientific management and effectiveness. If we have concerns about a country’s management program or a species’ population status, we will not issue permits.”

One such case occurred in 2014, when the agency shut down imports of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Tanzania because of the species’ marked population decline. “They also weren’t providing any evidence that the hunts were benefiting conservation, so Fish and Wildlife stopped allowing it,” Strickland said. “We’d like to see more of that type of decision making regularly.”

That’s the exception, not the norm, according to the report, which noted thousands of cases in which the Fish and Wildlife Service used special rules and loopholes to exempt hunters from permitting requirements for many species listed as endangered. The report authors found that between 2010 and 2014, the agency could have required permits for more than 2,700 hunting trophies imported to the county yet only required one, for a critically endangered black rhinoceros. Of 1,469 leopard trophies that could have mandated an import permit, the agency required none.

In other instances, such as the controversial baiting tactics that lured Cecil out of a protected area and led to his death at the hands of Walter Palmer, the trophy hunting industry isn’t “playing by the rules,” the report stated, and “needs to be regulated and held accountable for there to be any hope of a consistent conservation benefit.”

To help rein in the negative impacts of trophy hunting on wildlife, the report recommends that the Fish and Wildlife Service deny import requests from hunters convicted of wildlife violations, close loopholes that allow some trophies to be imported without permits, collect more data on trophy hunting through the permitting process, and increase permit fees to fund science and conservation.

Processing the Orlando Shootings | What is a False Flag, Having Compassion for those who have lost..


by Justin Deschamps

I recorded this video with my good friend Jeremy McDonald on Monday night, discussing the Orlando shootings and that it appears to be a false flag of some kind.

We discuss how as individuals we can process these events in an empowering way, offer healing to ourselves and others, and how to discern what the truth is so that personal understanding, closure, and reconciliation can take place.

“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion” – Anonymous

In these shifting times, the ability to personally know the truth, to become our own authority and to reclaim the powers of our own mind are essential skills to develop.
